BLACK MOTH TO DANCE AROUND DESERTFEST'S FLAME AGAIN IN 2018!
Raucous Leeds-founded rockers Black Moth have gatecrashed so many Desertscene events over the years they're practically part of the furniture. So it's only fitting that we welcome them warmly back into the fold for yet another rollocking riot in Camden at Desertfest 2018.
Right from the get-go of that sumptuous 2012 debut 'The Killing Jar', Black Moth have only ever been strictly all about those barrelling, garage rock n' roll riffs; a rhythm section tighter than a box of cable ties and of course all topped off with Harriet Bevan's coy, colloquial croon sailing high atop those dark, fluttering wings. 'Condemned to Hope' came out in 2014 and only further served to intensify Black Moth's resolve for writing killer, heavier, metallic riffage wrapped up in a package of songs catchy enough to crack the Radio1 Live Lounge. Despite consistently being slapped on stage with your typical four-band stoner rock bills over the years, the Mothsters have always mined a sound that's acutely closer to a mashup of The Stooges, Red Fang and L7; a sound we here at Desertscene will happily shake our manes down to any day of the year.
So don't be chicken shit, head to the barrier and catch Black Moth rock you like hurricane or six in Camden this coming May at Desertfest 2018.
